First, the friends have no idea why Hannes has selected Belgium as the destination of their annual cycling trip. When they find out the truth on their way, they react shocked: Hannes is suffering from incurable nerve disease ALS; he wants to anticipate the painful deterioration of his body. The aim of the trip is to find an active euthanasia in Ostend. After the initial shock, the group gathers in order to once again celebrate life with their dying friend and his wife - until that inevitable end. Supported by great actors the director succeeded to realize a tragicomic road movie instead of a melodrama.
